Test your geography knowledge with The Atlantic's Google Earth puzzle

Of the many Google innovations that have transformed our media world, Google Earth may be our fave. It takes a previously esoteric realm of photography — satellite imagery — and gives any internet user the power to view the planet from the sky. In doing so, it teaches us plenty about our impact on Earth. Earlier this month, The Atlantic presented readers with a challenge: look at a......read more

William Rugen: Harbinger

read
Ominous B&W images of planet Earth

We first came across William Rugen via his Western Dioramas series, a collection of photos of sweeping landscapes in the American West. That led us to Harbinger, an older Rugen Flickr set with a much different tone. Set in stark black-and-white, the photos offer ominous perspectives of Earth from land, water and sky. Oceanic flotsam, surburban landscapes, shadows of planes. What exactly......read more

Mesmerizing views of Iran's largest desert from space

For our money, there's nothing like some good satellite or aerial photography to shift our perception of this planet we call home. Looking like abstract paintings, these images offer stunning views of the arid landscapes in Iran's largest desert, the Dasht-e Kavir, or Great Salt Desert. The word kavir is Persian for salt marsh. The essentially uninhabited zone -- covering an area......read more

Eye-catching images of the city by night

London-born, Marseille-based photographer James Reeve trips the light fantastic with his most recent collection of images, Lightscapes. Working under cloak of night, Reeve trains his camera on the lights of the city, removing everything but the speckled light patterns themselves. The effect is arresting, akin to the woozy feeling one gets when looking out the window of an airplane at......read more

Kiwi photographer snaps nakedness from above

We've featured plenty of amazing aerial photography 'round these parts, but New Zealand's John Crawford takes sky-shooting to a whole other dimension. In his Aerial Nudes series, Crawford creates a unique mash-up between aerial landscapes and nude photography, as he takes to the air to capture a lone naked female form lying in various environments. The results are amusing and visually......read more

Aerial photos of the Ivanpah solar thermal plant by Jamie Stillings

Deep in California's Mojave Desert, construction is well underway on a solar power plant that may eventually generate enough electricity for 140,000 homes. When it's completed next year, the $2.2 billion, 3,600-acre Ivanpah solar thermal plant will be the largest of its kind in the world, with nearly 350,000 mirrors reflecting light onto boilers, creating steam to power turbines and generate......read more

Sky shots capture the "horror and enchantment" of LA

For several years, San Francisco-based photographer Michael Light has been flying his own lightweight aircraft to document the American West from the air. His latest book, LA Day/LA Night, shows off the beauty and horror of the City of Angels in equal measure. Whereas the nighttime photos carry a celestial, almost heavenly feel, the daytime images -- a selection of which are shown here -- are......read more

Photo series 'A La Plage, A La Piscine' captures sunny bliss by the sea

For his ongoing series A La Place, A La Piscine, photographer Gray Malin takes to the air in a doorless helicopter to capture exotic beachscapes from the sky. The results, a sampling of which you can see here, aren't doing anything to suppress our desire for a seaside vacation.  Malin’s photography showcases beaches large and small, rocky and sandy, crowded and untouched, from......read more

Russian photographer captures Iceland's volcanic rivers from above

Not that we needed it, but here's some more proof that Iceland is the the most photogenic place on Earth. These images, which could easily be mistaken for gorgeously rendered abstract paintings, are actually aerial photos by Russian photographer Andre Ermolaev, who took to the sky to capture stunning shots of ash-laden streams flowing from volcanoes in the Nordic nation. Ermaelov waxes......read more

Earth Photography by Daniel Beltra

A selection of staggering images from the renowned conservation photographer

We first became aware of award-winning conservation photographer Daniel Beltra via his amazing Spill series, a collection of aerial shots documenting the BP oil spill in the Gulf of Mexico. At once sickening and beautiful, the photos landed Beltra a Prix Pictet nomination. But Beltra's environmental photo portfolio goes much, much deeper than that. His work, on the ground and shooting......read more
